For the star runner I’m looking for some more fabric, especially a red stripe. I have a few pieces, but need more.
A recent quilting finish gave me a chance to share my way of loading my quilting machine, Gigi. I don’t have a full frame, so I have to get inventive. I made a tube of upholstery fabric that I attach my backing and batting to by way of pins. I put rings on the wheels of my carriage to keep the machine from drifting off the straight line I sew across the back/batting to use as a guide when I attach the top.
I also secure the sides as I advanced the top. Once these steps are done I am ready to fill the center with quilting patterns, be they FMQ, panto, or ruler work. When I get to the bottom of the sandwich I pin the bottom of the backing to a tube on the belly bar to quilt the lower portion. It may be unorthodox, but it works for me. Of course, this only works on pieces that are small enough to fit in the opening of my frame.
This quilt was made by a guild friend, I just supplied the quilting!
Now it’s time for you to share what you accomplished last week. Did your list have √’s or X’s? Share your finishes with us all!

Looks like you had some nice days for camping and a lovely spot, too! I like the looks of your star runner. Have fun finding that striped fabric!
The spot was across from the bathhouse, so it was the best place! LOL Thanks > >
Enjoy the camping getaway! We had a few days out and it was fun!
It was totally relaxing and lovely weather, except for the low 40 temps on Friday night! Brrr > >
That star runner design is awesome! Can’t wait to see that come together.
Thanks! With only 3 plaids at the moment, I am not moving very quickly on it. LOL! > >
Looks like you checked all the boxes this week! Hooray! Hope you can find stripe fabric! Seem to be on everyone’s list!

Thanks for sharing your process – interesting! The star runner is really pretty and summery!
Thanks! I need to do a deeper dive on my stash to see what I might have to use, and then go find the rest! > >
I like to hear of your creative frame work!!! It works. The star/circle runner is a beauty!
Me? I’m piecing hexies one Y seam after another……
Eek! I can’t even imagine doing hexies like that! Much prefer the method Luann Krug uses on her pillow pattern. LOL! Thanks! > >
You achieved all your goals and even went camping! Yea! It looks like you had a great location! I really like how you made the photo collages for your post!
Thanks! The collages are based on the options in the WordPress admin, nothing I did. But I use PicCollage on my phone when I want to create collages. It’s a great App. > >

You had a successful week, hope this week has been as good. I’m a bit behind on blog reading and doing link ups. I’m hoping the madness slows down at some point.
Thanks! Hope your end evens out!! > >
